"Old Bob is a noted strong premium ale. Only the finest East Anglian pale ale malt and fuggles hops are used to create this full-bodied, rich and spicy beer."
A Ridley’s beer, brewed at Greene King since late 2005.

Pours clear amber with a big tan foamy head. Lots of lace. Rich roasted and toffee aroma. Herbal with notes of chocolate, orange oil and mint. Long malty finish.

500 mL bottle: dark, clear brown amber, frothy off-tan head that forms an interesting plateau in the middle as it falls…herbal, floral aroma with hints of citrus, cedar and pine. Wonderfully developed malt body: sweet flowers, anise, chewy fruits, and malty-toffee. The long maltiness gives way to an even, fresh hop bitterness…this beer is wonderfully balanced: not overly strong in the alcohol department, well placed bitterness and enough malt to wrap it all together…I would love to give it a go on cask.

Hoppy aroma. The color is amber with a white head. The taste is sweet and malty with a wellbalanced hoppy palate.

fiulijn (13533) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 29, 2004
Clean amber color. Strange aroma, malty and fruity (red apples) and some alcohol, quite sweet. Not very complex but interesting; the malt comes with some light red apple fruitness, but most of all there is a good (partially aromatic) hopping, strong and very long at the end; the final is also characterized by a good and strong caramel character. Very good body structure.

UPDATED: DEC 24, 2006 Bottle. Orange/gold with an off-white head. Aromas are grain, metal with some caramel malts. Creamy with some spices. Flavours are creamy and malty with oranges and spices. Yeasty, despite being pasteurised.

Plain ale appearance with a lightly hopped aroma and slightly sour flavour. A plain beer, quite strong.

Ungstrup (28448) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - AUG 6, 2003
The nose is flowery, fruity but too faint. The color is amber and the head is small. The mouthfeel is very soft, and the flavor is fruity with notes of black currant and other berries. It is slightly prickling. All in all a really good beer.
